Optometry school is a 4-year program that prepares students to receive an O.D. degree and become an optometrist. As an optometry school student, you would typically attend classroom lectures and gain clinical experience to further your knowledge in the field. To become an optometrist, there is no need to go to medical school since optometry school would adequately prepare you for this career, and due to the time-consuming nature and rigorousness of the program, most choose to focus on optometry school only and not in addition to other commitments, such as medical school.
I hope this answers your question!
